Take a rip back through time with Chevrolet as it celebrates more than a 100 years of automotive history.

Experience summer cruising through a week-long virtual festival – Cruisin’ the USA in your Chevrolet – on Chevy’s social media channels from August 10-16.

The event is designed to take viewers back in time to experience the brand’s rich heritage of innovation, design and passion.

“Classic car events have served as a place for us to honour Chevrolet’s deep automotive history and its influence on our present and future with car enthusiasts from around the world,” Chevrolet’s Steve Majoros said.

“Cruisin’ the USA in your Chevrolet is a way for us to keep that spirit alive.”

Each day of the festival will incorporate a different theme and immerse the audience in historic footage, guest appearances, trivia and more.

Chevy experts will also provide in-depth looks at some of the brand’s most iconic vehicles housed at the General Motors Heritage Centre and even share their own custom Chevy builds.

The week will kick off with a journey back to 1911, when Chevy was founded by Louis Chevrolet and Billy Durant.

Viewers will have access to rare archival photos and videos from the last 109 years showcasing Chevy’s memorable feats.

Highlights of the past and present will include the technological evolution of Chevy’s electric vehicles, as well as its trucks and performance vehicles.

Children can also join in on the fun by downloading specially-designed colouring pages, puzzles and activities from the Chevy Design School and exploring cool Chevy themes to outfit their Animal Crossing world.

Schedule of Events: 

  • August 10: The Origins and Innovations of Chevrolet
  • August 11: Chevy’s Most Iconic Designs
  • August 12: The Proud Truck Tradition
  • August 13: The Peak of Performance
